Both Marilena Boccato and Gian Nicola Gigante have a degree in architecture from the IUAV (Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia), taken during the faculty's most prestigious years. They studied under Albini, Belgioioso, De Carlo, Gardella, Samon a Scarpa and Zevi. During the 70s they were part of the Archstudio group (with C. Bianchi and A. Zambusi). They have been members of the Order of Architects in the province of Treviso since 1967 and 1963 respectively. Boccato and Gigante's professional work follows a two-fold path: in architecture and renovation, with the construction of public and private buildings (both residential and industrial), and the refurbishment of buildings of historical importance; and in industrial design, with projects made for large manufacturing companies, several of which were awarded with prizes and nominations. Boccato and Gigante participated first-hand in the rising fame of Italian design, establishing long-lasting and fruitful relationships with the industry. The great number of products designed by the two architects testifies their dedication to their profession throughout their lengthy career. Their works of architecture, restoration projects and design have been frequently published in the most noteworthy specialized magazines.
